Guess What We Got For a "Shai L'Chag"!

One of the joys of living in Israel is the fact that the calendar is Jewish. You don't need to take special vacation days from work in order to celebrate Rosh HaShana or Yom Kippur (or the other religious holidays either).

In addition, in most places of employment, you receive two gifts a year from your employer - once before Rosh HaShana and once before Passover. These are called "shai l'chag" in Hebrew.

This year Westbankpapa came home from his hi-tech job with....wait for it....gourmet chocolates! These were as delicious to eat as they were to look at. A bottle of chocolate liquer was included. Now I can pretend to be Julia Child while cooking - but instead of drinking red wine I can indulge in some very good brown stuff....I'll let you know if my recipes come out the same, or perhaps even better...

A happy, healthy, and sweet new year to all of my readers

Maybe I should get a job in Hi Tech?! Alternatively I'll use the tlushim I got to buy, well, one gourmet chocolate. (You've gotta love non-profit)

Shana Tova WBM. All good things!

are you sure you weren't sending wbpapa's company telepathic messages that they should send chocolate?
i don't know if you're familiar with sandra boynton, the cartoonist (she does all of those animals with the glazed eye look), but there's this one cartoon and the caption says "things are getting worse. please send chocolate." if there's one thing i can be sure of, it's that all the time is an appropriate time to send chocolate!

shana tova to you and yours!

My husband's job had us choose between three things we didn't need. Usually there are coupons to stores I don't shop in. Ditto for the Irgun Morim gift certificates.
